           Secret                                TO
            Meat Quality




                   The highest quality pork is produced by purebred Berkshires.
 Only by having purebred sows can this pork be produced. In today’s meat market there has been
    an explosion in ‘100% Berkshire pork’ from suppliers that don’t seem to have any purebred
 Berkshire sows. These producers are taking Berkshire premiums while benefiting from the reduced
                           production costs of crossbred sows and pigs.

We believe in delivering the highest quality products to our meat customers, produced by purebred
 Berkshire pigs. Thanks to other Berkshire breeders that also believe in delivering a quality product
          by maintaining purebreds and supporting the ABA efforts to educate customers.

 Thanks to Six Point Nucleus, Myron Damman and Steve Stassen for their semen purchases,
                       we appreciate their support of our programs.

                       Semen from GFF Herd Sires is available at

 OLE3 Hill Wilbur 2-3 has been the foundation of our herd. He stood 2nd in class at the 2003 NBS and was
 Reserve Grand over all breeds at the North Central MO District Fair. Hill Wilbur and his offspring have been
 recognized as balanced, sound, and structurally correct while maintaining adequate muscle and fast
 growth. These hogs are an excellent outcross to add diversity in purebred herds or provide productive,
 easy keeping, fast growing pigs in a commercial operation. Our thanks to McCully Farms for their recent
 purchase of the Hill Wilbur son pictured here for use in their commercial operation.

 We also have January through April pigs sired by Hot Spot, a home-raised King Pin son, a Lister bred Hot
 Spot son, and we are excited about a Kahlua litter out of the Kysela NBS Reserve Gilt we purchased last fall.
 In addition, we have Chester White pigs sired by a Colossal son purchased from Randy and Becky Schmidt
 last winter. Give us a call for more info, and look for us at the MO State Fair, STC, and NBS this summer.

 emphasis on the retention of sows that are capable of producing more pigs.

          American Berkshire Association Board of Director
                    Election Candidate Profiles
          Clarke Burns, Brookfield, Missouri
          My wife Penny teaches school at Brookfield and we have three children. Whitney attends Missouri State University,
          Kellie is in high school and Lucas is in middle school.

          I grew up on the farm and worked here all of my life raising hogs all the time. We started with Berkshires as a 4-H
          project for the children and increased every year to 125 sows. We have been all Berkshire for four years now. I have
          held offices in local church, Pork Producers, and Farm Bureau.

          I know Berkshires are the top meat breed and I want to preserve that rank and see them promoted and supported as best
          as we can. We have fine programs going now for checking meat quality and these need to be continued as well as
          adding more within our own breed.

          We have the meat of choice; it just needs to be in all the best restaurants. There is a lot of potential market here in our
          country to use up our supply of hogs. Keeping that supply pure and registered through our association will maintain
          that demand.


          Dan Hodges, Oak Hill Farm, Julian, NE
          Married to Sue for 33 years this June. I have 3 children: Michael, Timothy, and Emily (all married); and 3 grandchil-
          dren; Elizabeth (3), Abigail (1), Liam (1).

          375 Acres of Crops; Corn and Soybeans
          180 Sow Berkshire heard in partnership with Michael
          100% Berkshire since 1990
          Raising Berkshires since 1967

          I have served on many community and church boards over the years and have also been active on the local, state, and
          national levels of pork producer organizations.

          At present I am Chief of our local volunteer fire department, Chairman of the County Planning Commission, Church
          Board Chairman and Secretary of our local Gideon’s International camp. In addition I am the Chairman of the
          Production Systems Advisory Group at the NPB and am the Immediate Past Chair of the Animal Science Committee. I
          have also served on the NPB Budget Task Force the last three years.

          The decisions that the ABA Board makes have a big effect on all of us and I would like to take a part in shaping the
          future of the Berkshire breed — a breed that is my livelihood. I have been a member of and have chaired numerous
          committees over the past several years and was also a member of the ABA board from 1993-1996. I feel these experi-
          ences will help me be an effective board member.

          In looking to the future it is often useful to look back at the past. 15 years ago we were concerned about whether the
          Berkshire Breed would even survive outside of the hobby area. Because of our efforts in promoting the scientifically
          validated meat quality traits that we possessed, that problem has been solved. Or has it! Pork quality is the hot issue
          today. The swine genome is being mapped. Genes with pork quality effects are being discovered. Genes are being
          patented. Other breeds and companies are developing quality based marketing programs. These are all present and
          potential challenges that we are going to need to address in the new few years if we are to maintain our place as the
          premier pork quality breed.

          To succeed in the future we are going to need to make hard choices. We are going to need to be proactive. As we devel-
          op new markets and opportunities we need to maintain and grow the markets we have now. Most of all, as we make
          these decisions we need to increase communication between board and membership and vice versa.

          Yes, we have challenges ahead but we also have tremendous opportunities. When I ran for the Board of Directors in
          1993, I pledged to do my very best to insure that Berkshires had a place in the swine industry of the 21st century. I
          renew that pledge to you today.


          Dustin M. Conover, Adel, IA - 25 years old
          CC Berks and D & W Berks have twenty sows. CC Berks is Gayle, Dustin, and Wade Conover, while D & W Berks is
          Gary Wall and myself. All the sows are at the same farm and I manage both herds. I have been around Berkshires ever
          since I was born and showed my first Berkshire gilt at the Iowa State Fair when I was three years old with my father,
          Cliff. I was in 4-H and youth group. When I was a freshman, junior and senior in high school I was President of the
          Hominy Ridge Independence Club and Vice-President my sophomore year.

           My reasons for running for the ABA Board of Directors are to help make Berkshires better, keep the breed strong in the
           future and my love for the breed of hogs and the people in it. There is a lot to be said about both.

           Right now the breed is separated into two kinds of hogs; the Meat Quality kind and the Show Ring kind. My future
           vision is to try and combine the two. The ABA Board of Directors has two big jobs and that is to ensure that the meat
           programs continue to grow and provide a place for Berkshire market hogs. The other is to provide a place for breeders
           to show the rest of the world that we are making Berkshires that can compete and still get it done in the real world.
           Other breeds have forgotten how to do that.


           Tona Smith, Alexander, Illinois
           My husband Randy & I have been married for almost 31 years. We have three children. Our daughters Mandy & Dusti
           are married and have 3 children each. Our son Cody who will soon be seventeen still lives here at home and helps with
           the family farm.

           We farm around 1,000 acres with Randy’s father Darrell & his brother Darin who also has a cattle operation. Our pure-
           bred hog operation consists of show pigs & breeding stock of all breeds. Berkshires have been one of our main focuses
           since adding them to our herd almost 10 years ago. We purchased our first Berkshire gilt at a joint conference with the
           Polands in Missouri. We quickly saw how well they performed & were “hooked” on Berkshires right away! I have
           served as secretary for Illinois Young Farmers, Illinois Poland Assn., Illinois Landrace Assn., Illinois Purebred Swine
           Council, and am currently serving as Illinois Spot Secretary & Board Member. We are members of the Illinois
           Berkshire Assn. as well as CPS Breeds’ State Associations. I was a 4-H leader for about 10 years. I served as the first
           President of the Illinois Porkettes, received the first Bell Ringer Award as well as Morgan County Farm Bureau
           Outstanding Farm Woman of the Year award.

           I am finishing my first term on the ABA Board. I was originally asked to run because of my knowledge of the show
           industry. I have put that knowledge to use and I feel my input to the board has been valuable in making the decisions
           we have had to make. One of my goals three years ago was the growth of Team Purebred and joining forces with CPS
           to host joint shows. Because of my background in assisting with shows and sales for other breeds, and my association
           with CPS Breeders, I was able to play an instrumental role in achieving those goals, and would like to continue to be a
           leader in this area.

           Our meat program is another essential key to Berkshire growth. I feel without a doubt that we have the best product
           and program to offer both breeders and consumers. We continually strive to update our program to meet certification
           requirements as well as the needs of our breeders and consumers. This is not always an easy process, but I would like
           to tackle these challenges as well.

           I have enjoyed my past three years on the board. There have been tough decisions to make and my decisions were
           always based on what I thought was best for our organization and not just what I wanted on a personal level. I have
           enjoyed meeting new breeders, listening to your thought and ideas and taking them to the board.

           My future vision for the Berkshire Breed is that of continued growth. In times when other breed associations have seen
           a reduction in numbers at shows, Berkshires have continued to grow, often being the largest or second largest breed in
           terms of numbers at shows. In my travels to shows and sales in the south I have seen more new Berkshire Breeders
           each year. The demand for Berkshires continues to grow. I believe this has been the result from some of the decisions
           we as a board have made the past three years, which were not always popular at first but have proven to be the wise
           choice. I want to see our meat program continue to grow, become utilizable by more members and be as cost effective
           as possible.

           Being a Board member has been a challenge which I have enjoyed. I believe it takes dedication and hard work to make
           the decisions necessary for continued growth and success. After careful thought I am pledging my dedication to you
           the Breeders for the next three years to continue to serve on your Board of Directors.

           Have raised Berkshires for seven years and currently have 15 sows. I have served on the Show Committee for two
           years.

           I drive a fork lift for Curwood Bemis Corp.- Manufacturer of Shrink packaging.

           I want to raise awareness of the quality of Berkshires in the Southern U.S. in the show ring as well as quality of their
           meat, showing that they are competitive in both markets.

           Get litter registration numbers up in the Oklahoma and Texas regions. Work with the Association with meat program
           and possibly get special packaging for Berkshire meat similar to Certified Angus Packaging, etc. I would also like to
           raise consumer awareness of meat quality of the Berkshire breed.

BREEDERS DIGEST for June-July 2006
                            A Note from Amy Jo
   Team Purebred is an ever changing organization that continues to grow throughout the years, both by the num-
   ber of members and the addition of quality events. The success of our organization and all of our events can be
   credited to a very devoted group of juniors and an endless list of sponsors, volunteers, breeders, parents, and
   other individuals who are committed to the success of youth.

   Behind every successful person stand several others who have encouraged and helped that individual reach new
   heights. All of us have had a devoted parent, teacher, mentor, or friend that has helped us at some point in our
   life to achieve success. We often get caught up in our success or caught up in our own excitement, we end up
   forgetting how we actually got to the positions we are in. We forget to say what I believe to be two of the most
   important words in the English vocabulary “Thank you.” These two words mean a lot; please take time to show
   your appreciation to the people that do so much.

   Take time to thank the people that contribute their time and money, resources and knowledge to Team Purebred
   and to each of us independently. It is these selfless individuals that make it possible for the junior members of
   Team Purebred to have so many opportunities to meet new friends, compete on a national level, and perfect the
   skills we will use through our lives.

   Sometimes I feel that as a society we have gotten too busy to sit down and reflect on successes, failures, and
   even knowledge gained in our experiences. Without time to reflect on these things, we fail to see the many peo-
   ple who have helped us along the way, consequently they go unappreciated. I encourage you the next time you
   see someone who has been influential in your life or has helped you achieve success somewhere throughout
   your life to thank them. Sit down and write them a simple note to let them know just how much you appreciate
   their support and encouragement.

                        Silent gratitude isn't much use to anyone. — G.B. Stern

    Once again this year Team Purebred is sponsoring a Silent Auction at the 2006 Summer Type
  Conference in Springfield, IL. from June 28 to July 1. We are currently accepting donations for this great
  event to help raise funds for Team Purebred. In 2005, over $4200 was raised for Team Purebred.
     Items can be anything craft related, art/collector items, memorabilia, semen, or anything you feel
  would be of value to someone else. These can be items that would appeal to small children as well as
  seniors. We would love to have items from each of the breed associations.
    This is a great way to help Team Purebred and have a lot of fun in the process. The bidding will start
  on Wednesday, June 28 and continue through Friday, June 30.
     To donate your items, please contact one of the following people: Erin Musick (217) 696-4893 or
  email: pmusick@adams.net; Tammy Miller (815) 567-3327; or Sharon McWhinney (937) 456-2844 —
  cell (937) 545-8440 or email: smcgmblr@infinet.com.
     We would like to have your donations by June 10 (Saturday of World Pork
  Expo). Please let us know what you’re planning to donate so we can publi-
  cize our list. You may bring the items to the show with you, or get them
  to one of us early. Please consider donating to this great cause and


                                                                      old!

           gambling with him at all, and are very excited about

   Spring Excited Leads to Summer Success
  Thanks to all of our customers for the most
  successful and rewarding spring sale season
  we’ve ever had.
  The Polands, sired by King Size, generated a
  lot of talk in the barns this spring. Watch for
  the litter 13 pigs at the STC this summer. The
  dam of this litter is the mother of our great
  Indiana Reserve Grand Gilt last summer. A
  special thanks to the Wall Family for purchas-
  ing a barrow from this litter for the WPX.
                                                                                  KING SIZE
  The Chesters, sired by Rudy, a great son of
  Ghost Rider, were very popular. Watch for more of these at the Indiana State Fair, and at Austin.
  Our young Berkshire program created a lot of excitement this spring. A very special thanks to
  Daniel Neal of Newcastle, IN., for his $800 purchase of our Berkshire gilt at the Winner’s Choice
  pig sale. She will be heard from a lot this summer. Watch for more of these, sired by Kindergarten
  Cop, this summer at the STC, Indiana, and the NBS.
           Watch for us this summer at the WPX, STC, and Indiana State Fair

 “They’re real, and they’re spectacular!”
                                              If you are a fan of the television comedy “Seinfeld” as much as I am, you
                                         will recognize that famous quote. Apparently that show helped catapult the career
                                         of a now famous actress.
                                              I’m not saying all our hogs are spectacular, but all our boars and gilts are real.
                                         I don’t take hogs to national shows very often, but I did take two boars to last year’s
                                         National Barrow Show. The boar I showed gave me quite a workout as he went
                                         from boar to boar wanting to fight or jump them. He never stopped running! When
                                         the judge gave reasons on my 2nd place boar, he said, “I guarantee you that boar
                                         will breed your sows.” Later in the show another boar made it outside the show ring
                                         and collapsed. I really thought he’d die, but he did recover. I’m guessing he was
                                         fed more than his share of a product not labeled for breeding stock. The next day
            RS5 Louie 50-1               when I was getting my boar ready for the sale, I looked over and saw the owner of
                                         that boar give him a shot of “something.” The only needles my boars have seen
                                         were the baby pig iron shot, and the NBS required erysipelas, Parvo, Lepto vac-
                                         cine. They were blood tested to document that they were negative for PRRS, PRV,
                                         APP, SIV and Brucellosis.
                                             Don’t get me wrong, I respect the majority of my fellow breeders, but I have a
                                         real problem with this “whatever it takes to win the show” approach. If you win the
                                         show with a “real” animal, you’ve accomplished something.
                                             If you have a Chester boar that is spectacular, keep him real and gather factu-
                                         al data like 21 day litter weights, backfat and days to 250 pounds. I’m always inter-
                                         ested. We’re in this together.
                                            Louie 50-1: My NBS 2nd place boar was raised in a group of over 30 boars.
                                         He grew the fastest with 153 days and .53 B.F. at 250#. He was a linebred Classic
          RS2 Z6 Anna 141-13             son on a Classic daughter mating. He had a 111.90 maternal index and a -4.69
                                         days EPD. He sold to a repeat commercial customer of ours.
                                             Anna 141-13: is our top ranking sow in SPI and litter weights. Her EPD’s are
                                         121.71 SPI, +.48 number born, +12.88 litter wt. She has raised 7 litters with a far-
                                         rowing interval of 144.6 days. She has farrowed 99 pigs and weaned 82 for a 11.71
                                         average. Her 1st litter of F1 pigs didn’t get weighed, but the 21-day litter wts. on
                                         the next 6 were 214, 196, 168, 217, 185, 139 for a 186.5# average. She has a
                                         docile disposition. Although she’s been on slats her entire life, she doesn’t have a
                                         sore joint in her body.
                                             Harley: A boar I retained who was sired by Jolly Jogger. Jolly Jogger’s NBS
                                         progeny test pen had the best muscle quality score over all breeds at the 2005
                                         National Barrow Show. Harley’s maternal grandsire was Class and a great grand-
                                         sire was Momentum. Momentum had 3 NBS progeny test pens with outstanding
                                         muscle quality scores of 67.92, 67.12 and 62.61. Harley has an excellent 8-8
            Jolly Jogger 2-1             underline and was raised in a group of 33 boars having the best days (158) and
                                         being the 2nd leanest (.45). His EPD’s are -.02 born, +.29 LW, -.01 BF, -2.08 days.
                                             Anna 60-6: I didn’t think it would happen, but she broke 141-13’s farm record
                                         and had 13 F1 pigs weight 220# at 21 days. This Colossal daughter has raised 33
                                         pigs in her first 3 litters.
                                              Our Chesters, Durocs and Yorks represent many generations of the best AI
                                         boar stud bloodlines. We have excellent Chester F1 gilts and all our hogs are free
                                         of the stress gene.
                                              If you want Chesters with SPF health, EPD’s, and from someone who has the
                                         leadership to put more Chesters in progeny and boar tests than anyone else, give
                                         us a call. You’ll do business with the person who bred the sow, farrowed and
                                         weighed the pigs and watched them grow. We’ll do our best to make you a satis-
                                         fied customer.
